The Big Fake Wedding - Charleston


Charleston, SC | April 2019

What is the Big Fake Wedding? Find out more about it here. But long story short, it is a ‘bridal show alternative’ where you (as a bride) are able to attend and see all of the vendors in your area in action on a real wedding day.

I knew that I would be able to have great photos to use and add to my portfolio, I knew I could meet potential brides, but what I didn’t know is that I would make the best of friends in the other two photographers! We worked so well together, had a blast, and now have each other in different parts of the state to count on and talk to.

I was able to meet and work with so many incredible vendors, you will see their amazing work below. The couple who renewed their vows could not have been sweeter (and hey, we had so many mutual friends too!). This is an experience I will never forget.

For people wondering why I went to Charleston for this event - 1. I was supposed to go to the Greenville on but I had a baby and they happened at just about the same time! 2. I would love to continue to expand my reach to all of South Carolina and beyond even so this was a great first step.

Enjoy all the prettiness below and just know my jaw was on the floor all day. Sidenote - I want the Bubbly Bus at all the things!!
